Halo CME on 20060826 - SOHO/LASCO C3 Data

COMMENTS: I expect that this ejecta will probably graze the earth magnetosphere. Therefore, the observed disturbance may not be a MC but rather a complex ejecta or a cloud-like structure. The Bz component in the front part of the MC (if any) is expected to be northwardly directed. A moderate storm can, however, be caused by the possible negative Bz in the trailing part of the MC.

1Numbers in red are estimates. Numbers in parenthesis (if any) are actual measured values
*These estimates should be compared to the observed 1 hour averaged ACE and Dst values
